Inside Vintage Synthesizer Studio: Handwerk Audio
Peter Van Hoesen and Exercise One’s Marco Freivogel and Ricardo De Azcuenaga are known by techno fans across the world for their music.
The trio also own one of Europe’s most well-stocked vintage synth studios. Located in Berlin’s Kreuzberg district, Handwerk Audio allows anyone to pay to use some of history’s most sought-after electronic instruments, giving hard-up producers the opportunity to incorporate real analog sound in their productions without breaking the bank.
FACT TV visited Handwerk Audio where Van Hoesen and Freivogel took us on a tour of its instruments. As well as well known staples like the TR-808 drum machine and the Minimoog Model D, they introduced us to more obscure instruments such as Italy’s Elka Synthex and the strange OSCar synth from the early ‘80s.
